Metadata Management is essential to solving a wide variety of critical business and technical challenges which include how report figures are calculated, understanding the impact of changes to data upstream, providing reports in a business friendly way in the browser and providing reporting capabilities on the entire metadata of an enterprise for analysis and improvement. Oracle Metadata Management is built to solve all these pressing needs for customers in a lightweight browser-based interface.
Oracle Metadata Management is now based upon 100% Java delivery and installation allowing support for Windows as well as variation Linux/Unix deployments. This provides all UI features and any bridges which are executable in a Java and Linux/Unix based environment, specifically 100% java based bridges including JDBC database bridges (Oracle, Teradata, DB2, SQL Server, etc.), big data bridges (Hadoop Hive, HCatalog), and other popular bridges such as CA ERwin xml, Informatica PowerCenter xml, Tableau BI, etc.
Oracle Metadata Management configuration architecture visualization is now based upon an HTML 5 based implementation which includes better scalability, performance and overall layout quality, and supports iPad and other tablets.
Oracle Metadata Management provides two primary user interfaces for access, analysis, management and administration. The Metadata Manager UI provides a more technical interface for those who are managers of the metadata or administrators of the repository. The Metadata Explorer UI is designed for optimized search, analysis and reporting, as well as more control over the context (configuration version) presented to given users.
Oracle Metadata Management is now offering detailed DI data flow lineage analysis on demand only (in real time), instead of pre-calculating. This enhancement means that harvesting times are reduced by about 80%!
Oracle Metadata Management has a great number of new or enhanced bridges covering RDBMS, Big Data, Data Modeling, Data Integration, and Business Intelligence.
More details on the bridges and all the New Features for this release can be found here.
